Bath Time for Laini by Heatherzart Bath Time for Laini by Heatherzart
Scratchboard and Ink

18" x 24"

Made some changes! Thank you to everyone who suggested something, all suggestions were very helpful. I changed the direction of the light source slightly and put in some ground. I think it focuses your eye in the right area and she isn't floating anymore.

Oh yeah, this little lady's name is Laini, I talked to her keeper last night.

My first critique!

I really love the composition/pose of the subject. It's a unique pose that you don't see too often in art and that is part of what makes this piece so interesting. The lighting is the other part that makes this interesting. I love how he seems to come out of the black shadows and the source of lighting.

With that said, I was wondering if part of the reason why you feel it is not finished is because of the lighting. I was thinking that maybe you could possibly show the light source more by having more highlights and such. Or go for the reverse and have some of the darks darker. Other than that, it looks finished to me, but I don't have the origional and that's how I always tell!
What do you think?

Just discovered your gallery!! I am blown away. My own gallery shows a definite favoring of black and white, but I gotta tell you, your colored pieces are gorgeous with fantastic light sources.

Another amazing picture. I love every detail that you used. The muscles and flesh, the whiskers, the fur, everything is so precise.
